Spaghetti Pie

You know that I put some spaghetti sauce in the freezer recently, right? Well, here's one of the ways I like to use it.


8 ounces spaghetti
2 eggs, beaten separately
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup ricotta cheese
2 cups meat spaghetti sauce (heated)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Spray a deep dish pie plate with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

Cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain. Combine one egg, Parmesan and butter with the cooked pasta. Press mixture evenly into bottom of 9-inch deep dish pie plate.

In a small bowl, combine ricotta cheese with one egg; spread over pasta. Spoon spaghetti sauce over ricotta layer.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and bake 15 more minutes. Remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes.

Cut into wedges to serve.

Yield: 4 to 6 servings
